      Trailblazer 325?????????????????

      I like the 325 alot better, all around, had one problem with it today. It ran all morning and we shut it off and when we came back and tried to crank it didnt want to run, like it wasn't getting no gas, fooled with it a few mins and it finally started running again, but still on one tank of gas

        EFI seems to make a big difference.

          I would just like to hear the noise of the machine instead of hearing the people talk that is my big selling point to buy one. I want to know how quiet it is in real site applications within different amps and power loads.

            high revv

            if they can do what they say with the 325 then they should improve all of the other machines, from high dollar to low. however ,they should not reduce the gas tank size. even though mig is not used much on welder/generators, they shoud all say that they can run mig without it revving up. if they did then the other processes would also benifit!

              I got a quote from a dealer on a new 325 today wih Efi it was $4980 and the EFI Excel was $5350.00 plus tax. They did not have either in stock and had to call miller to even find out about it as it was not in the books. I am torn if I want sell my pro 300 and get one . I just like the thought of the weight of the machine and having one with a warranty. I am just not sure if I want to be a test subject till they get the bugs worked out.

                Trailblazer 325?????????????????

                Been running ours for a weeks straight, 8 to 10 hours a day, and haven't had a problem with it yet, except one day, it didn't want to start back after lunch, don't know what it was, but hasn't done it since.

                  I'm thinking about buying a trailblazer 325 when I get my income tax return next February.
                  im looking at the excel power option, is it worth the $500?
                  the machine adjust engine speed based on load requirements? So I'm kinda confused. How much will it rev up running just a grinder without excel power?

                  Also, can you get machines cheaper if you pick them up from the factory?

                    Had one in the shop for cover fitting and remote. Took it apart. The generator is a little cheaper, kinda looks like the ones that were in the T-dyne engine drives. so not repairable should it crash, That said, the unit put out a nice controllable arc, super quiet, A little more electronics, but they are easy to get too. And the machines are quite light wt. I'd definately buy one over a Ranger 305. The Exell power is worth the coin as well.

                      Still loving my TB302 but one of these days it may need replaced.

                      Just curios did they move the oil filter and drain to the left hand side of the machine? From what I can make out it looks like it, and also the fuel filler. That will make it hard to service for us guys that mount in a pickup facing the drivers side.

                      Why in the world did they remove the AC welding capability? Have only used it a few times on my 302 but when I needed it to get out of a severe arc blow situation it was a real life saver.

                        Marketing would be my guess.
                        If you want Ac output, gotta buy a dynasty.

                        So, yes on the excel power. 10-4

                          Well, yeah, cause the engine and gen are reversed, so yep the filter is now on the other side. AS for the AC capability, not many were using that function, so it was discontinued. Basically if your running Aluminum, its through a spoolgun in CV.

                              Sounds like you may need a front or rear mount remote oil drain and filter kit in that application. I think I should have enough clearance... but I might not, I'll keep you posted.

                                Finally Miller has caught up with the Lincoln. This 325 has the same basic theory as the Lincoln 305. Yes the 325 is vulnerable in a few areas. But after stripping one down. I actually like it, and its very suprising for me to like any engine drive of Millers.
